Livingston Izabal/ Puerto Barrios, Guatemala Tour


Livingston Guatemala

On arrival in Livingston Guatemala and after getting checked into our hotel the Villa Caribe we decided to take a walk around the town of Livingston.

Caribbean Playa Blanca Beach Livingston Guatemala

Caribbean Playa Blanca Beach Livingston Guatemala. A tropical paradise in Playa Blanca, Izabal. White sand, clear waters, sun and palm trees...a perfect combination por a perfect relax. Playa Blanca is a white sand beach, something different from the rest of places with black sand due to the volcanic nature of Guatemala. Guatemala is full of beauties, trust me, Playa Blanca is the place to be and is very diferent because of it's white sand.
“get a calendar and make time por traveling to Playa Blanca”. Thanks God I have met many places from Guatemala and it is imposible to create a list of the top ten or top 20, I´ve seen incomparable and wonderful landscapes, since I am not a beach and sand guy, Playa Blanca has made me think deeply about it. If you are reading this in your office, the internet café or you place, I can asure you, once you visit Playa Blanca in Izabal, you’ll experience a feeling of guiltness por those days you have spent watching tv at home, there many marvelous places in our country, nothing to envy from places around the world.
Is it located in Izabal and watching the white sand with the clear water it is amazing. If you are a beach boy or girl, and you like the sun and palm trees and you haven´t been here….you ´re missing it.

To get there you have to take the atlantic road, passing for “el rancho” keep straight until Puerto Barrios Izabal, estimated traveling time to his point from the city 3 hours and half. Once you´re there you have to take a boat, if you travel by bus, you have to walk like ten blocks from the bus station or you can take a cab, if you travel by car, there are places near the dock where you can leave the car, the rates are reasonable.

The estimated time of boat travel is 30 minutes to Livingston where you can find hotels according to your needs, there are places to eat, there is a Bar at the end of the street where you can see the locals dancing “punta” a traditional dance of the place, but there are all kind of music .
To get to playa blanca you have to take another boat, the cost per person is Q90, there is no schedule for this, there must be at least 8 people to go to Playa Blanca or if there are less persons you can arreange the price with the pilot of the boat. Usually this trips last 4-6 hours, in Playa Blanca there are not hotels, but they have one nice local restouran, and you can try delicious food!
Many people could think that this is not Guatemala, but get real, it is... The first reaction from local people when they see the pictures is “where is that?” and when they hear the answer the second one is : “for real???” and the third reaction is: “i want to go there” and of course, we advice you to do it.
If you think that the place is kinda far away... if you depart in the morning, without getting up to early , you’ll be there for lunch and there are cheap places to eat... to expensive? If you take a bus, the cost of the ticket is Q40 and the buses are comfortable, I have traveled in one of them. If you bring your car, it will depend on the performance of your car, in our case is was quite good…so instead of thinking for excuses for not going, think how to get there, and if you still don´t know how, see the pictures, something will come, it is worth it.

Bring a friend, or your future girlfriend if she still making her mind up, you will make a good impression. If it is a family trip it is more expensive the it is something the will remember, and course don´t forget your camera.

Guatemala - Livingston
Livingston is the name of a town in Izabal Department, eastern Guatemala, at the mouth of the Río Dulce at the Gulf of Honduras. The town (whose name is occasionally adapted into Spanish orthography as Lívingston) serves as the municipal seat of the municipality of the same name. It was Guatemala's main port on the Caribbean Sea before the construction of nearby Puerto Barrios.
Livingston is noted for its unusual mix of Garífuna, Afro-Caribbean, Maya and Ladino people and culture. In recent decades Livingston has developed a large tourist industry.
Livingston is named after American jurist and politician Edward Livingston who wrote the Livingston Codes which were used as the basis for the laws of the liberal government of the United Provinces of Central America in the early 19th century.
Boats run several times a day from Puerto Barrios, and twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays from Punta Gorda, Belize. Boats also run every morning from Livingston to Punta Gorda. However, due to collusion between boat owners, the fares are much higher than passage from Puerto Barrios. Another boat communicates Livingston with the town of Río Dulce, and runs every day. All access is via watercraft since there is no road link to the rest of Guatemala.
The Mayan language Q'eqchi' is spoken in Livingston, as is the Garifuna language. The school Luba Awanselula located near the cemetery gives classes in English and Garifuna.Wikipedia

Garifuna Culture - Livingston, Guatemala

Exploring the Guatemalan Port City of Livingston.
I meet up with Diana from Antojitos Los Tres Garifunas.
The Garifuna's are one of five cultural groups in Livingston.
They are the descendants of West African slaves shipwrecked on St Vincent, who interbred with the local Carib and Arawak people. When the British took over St Vincent from the French, they exiled the Garifuna. The Garifuna now populate the Belize, Guatemalan and Honduras Caribbean Coast.
I speak with Diana about Guifitti, a medicinal alcoholic tonic made up of sixteen different herbal roots. It is believed to be a 'cure all'.
I also show you the 'ghost hotel' I am staying in that is currently being renovated. As repairs are under way, I'm one of the few guests.

Está ubicado a orillas de la Bahía interna de Santo Tomás, en la Bahía de Amatique en el Mar Caribe.
